Justin B. Smith is Chief Executive Officer of Bloomberg Media Group, Bloomberg L.P.'s global multi-platform media organisation that comprises digital, mobile, television, digital video, radio, print magazines and live events platforms.
Since joining Bloomberg L.P. in September 2013, Justin has led an aggressive digital transformation and globalisation of Bloomberg Media Group’s businesses. Under his leadership, the company has become majority-digital in terms of revenue and audience, with digital audiences growing 85% and digital advertising revenue more than doubling. Justin has also expanded Bloomberg Media Group’s global footprint through ambitious multi-platform partnerships in the Middle East, India, Japan, and Southeast Asia. In the last year, Justin and his team announced two groundbreaking initiatives: TicToc by Bloomberg, the first-ever 24/7 global breaking news network designed for Twitter and social media; and the launch of the New Economy Forum, a new institution convening 400 world leaders across the public and private sectors in China in November 2018. This year, Bloomberg Media Group is on track to realise its highest revenues on record, powered by double-digit innovation-led growth.
